    It is a really nice place in Taichung. The location is easy to find as it is next to a major shopping mall. There are a lot of shops in the area, places to eat and generally, things to do. The staff is very polite and unintrusive. If you're expecting a luxury experience, this is not going to be it but if you're looking for a decent place that costs just right, go for it, there are a lot more pluses than minuses for this place.

    It's a small, cozy place and I would def come again! The staff was so friendly and helpful as well as welcoming. However it takes quiet some time to go to the train station or city centre and might be a little hard to find if you find yourself without WiFi, but I would come again any time!

    The atmosphere is very quiet. It is like you stay at your local friend's house more than a hostel but that's nice.

    The location was good. It's close to the night market. You can simply walk there. It was quite tricky to find the guest house, but once you get there it's easy. There's a small temple (I guess) nearby and the neighbor is quite and nice. You can see the local area and people.

    Overall the pricing is worth it.. It would be gd if more toiletries were provided (shampoos n shower gel were out of stock) Addition of towels would be great for backpackers :)) There r still room for improvement :)

    An adequate hostel in a location convenient for public transport. The bathrooms are good and clean, as is the basic kitchen. The staff is helpful but sometimes elusive. There were mosquitoes in the dorm one night. Don't rely on the directions given in the Hostelworld email to find the hostel. They are inadequate and misleading. Use Googlemaps instead.

    Was a bed while I stayed in Taichung, but that's about all. Quite hard to find and is down an alleyway. Very quiet hostel, the room I was on gave off a bit of a prison cell vibe. Other room looked a bit nicer!

    Difficult to find, no signs, but Google Maps helps. The common area doesn't really invite you to site there, no AC. The staff is not really interested, poor English, doesn't try to connect people. Dormbeds are standard. Ants in the room.

    Good location (close to the night market), but that's about all it has going for it. There was zero atmosphere (I was the only person staying there one night!), and the staff was a bit awkward and unfriendly. Also, I found a cockroach in the room!! I actually ended up leaving Taichung a day earlier than planned, partially because I was so unhappy here.
